Today I’m happy to show you the new look of my blog! I had long thought about it and finally I did it!

I don’t know how about you, but I was quite tired of my old design and wanted something more minimalist, light and fresh to better reflect my aesthetics. First I wanted to do the whole redesign myself, but I had to be realistic and admit that I don’t have time for that… Fortunately, I got a lovely theme from Blogmilk and after playing a little bit with CSS I can proudly present it today :) There are still minor things to do (like creating some structure of post categories… ), but it’s quite ready now!

So what do you think? I’d really really like to know!

    I love this new look! Very nice, bright and light.

    I have been wanting to do something similar to mine as well. I have always done it myself but I think I might get a template in the nearest future to make it even better.

    Thanks for sharing Blog Milk :)

      Thank you!
      Using a template that is quite near to the look that you are thinking about saves a huge amount of time, although I would have tried to do it all myself if I had more time. I use CSS and HTML not very often and every time I start it feels like I have to learn it all over again. I’m already waiting to see your site redesign, it will be pretty, I know!

    I absolutely love it! It’s very close to something I want to do with my blog as well but in the future, probably a few months on the line :) I made the one I have on my own but it’s very tiring and I would rather put all the time and effort on my posts instead. I will definitely use either a template or just hire someone to hopefully help me haha

    Decor Dots looks absolutely lovely I love how the posts look now so much more ♥♥

      I’m so happy that you love it and like it much more than the older version!
      Yes, it’s time consuming to do everything by yourself – I did the previous version of the blog (only the CSS part though, functionality was from the template) and therefore I knew that with a busy 10 month old I don’t have that much free time :)
      Will be waiting to see your blog’s new look someday, although it’s really nice also the way it is now!

    Oh wow, great minds think alike – I’m in the process of choosing a template through Blogmilk! I’m a huge fan of Ana Degenaar’s work :) Yours looks amazing – and you did that so fast! I always get nervous about the changeover, especially because mine has been quite heavily modified. Was it an easy transition? I also have to wait for my new banner design. You’ve made me super excited Anu!! x x

      Thanks, Michelle! It wasn’t actually so fast – I started choosing a template a few weeks ago and just when I thought that I have chosen the template I changed my mind and kept looking. Typical me! The transition was quite easy, although I tweaked some things and there is still some work to do… For example I discovered that the font I’m using doesn’t render well in Chrome browser on PC, so I think I have to find other similar font. And I don’t have proper banner/logo…

      I’ll be really excited to see your new look, especially now when I know that it would be on one of the gorgeous Blogmilk templates!

    Anu it’s positively gorgeous and very much your aesthetic! Congratulations and I have to say that well done for even working with a theme, I’m hopeless at that! Mel xx

      Thank you, Mel! x
      Makes me happy to hear that others think also that it’s closer to my aesthetics than the previous look. When I designed the previous version almost two years ago, I was just started my blog and hadn’t found my style yet, so it was about time for redesign.

    Kiidan kõva häälega, Anu! Aga tõtt öelda, poleks ma Sinult ka midagi vähem stiilset oodanudki… :D
